Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We present 20 cases of primary intracranial lymphoma and review the most important published series on this subject. The clinical patterns and the differential diagnosis from other intracranial space-occupying lesions on the CT and angiographic evidence are discussed. Surgical treatment was given in 19 of our cases, followed in 17 cases by radiotherapy and in 4 by chemotherapy. One patient was treated by a ventriculo-peritonal shunt. The effectiveness of the various modalities of treatment is discussed in the light of survival.
